Land Rover is planning on arranging its model line-up around three pillars: Range Rover, Discovery and Defender, meaning that all the company’s vehicles will fall into one of those three categories.
But where does that leave the Freelander. As we’ve mentioned before, the obvious conclusion is that the Freelander will become part of the Discovery family. Land Rover has now pretty much confirmed this, stating that the Discovery will become its own range of vehicles in 2015.
Moreover, Carscoops is reporting that, according to a source within Land Rover, the next-generation Freelander will be called the Discovery Sport, and will enter production in December 2015.
What do you think? Will the Freelander indeed become the Discovery Sport? Sounds very plausible to us…
